A giant “chicken spider” (undescribed Pamphobeteus sp.) with its “fellow” humming frog (Chiasmocleis royi) under its legs. This spider will not eat the frog as it does with other ones, cause there’s a still not fully known symbiosis between these two species. They actually live together communally in the same burrow of the lowland rainforest. The spider is surely a deterrent to the frog’s predators, but does the frog “give” something back to the spider? This is a old picture (2008) I shot in Peru, during a trip to @losamigosbiologicalstation managed by @conservacionamazonica. I’ll be back in the area this year and I’ll hopefully meet my friends again. #predatoridelmicrocosmo #pickoftheday #wildlifephotography #macro #symbiosis #chiasmocleis #pamphobeteus #chickenspider #tarantula #mygalomorphae #peru @ilcp_photographers
